The Doctor is neither 100% male nor female - like all of us

Steven Moffat adjusts his answer to the question of a female Doctor in a rather interesting way.

“In my head, rationally, it seems to me - you know how human beings are never completely male or female; you’re mostly a woman, I’m mostly a man? - that maybe a male Time Lord is someone most of whose regenerations are male,” Moffat continued. “Maybe he’ll have a couple of female ones. The science-fiction of that would make sense to me. Otherwise I think life might be a little bit complicated on Gallifrey - or would it? I don’t think they’d care.”

The Doctor's hopes and fears

Talking to io9 at Comic-Con:

Peter Capaldi feels that the Doctor has “a complicated moral position, in that he definitely wanted to help people, and wanted to save the universe, but often there would be a wake of suffering and pain. And he thought, ‘Can I live with that? Am I responsible for that?’ And eventually, he realized that is who he is.” But now the Doctor has realized what a gift he has, because “the universe is mine to play in,” says Capaldi. He can “range all the way in time and space.” And even though the Doctor is 2,500 years old, “life is still short.”

Steven Moffat adds “I don’t think the Doctor ever stops asking the question, ‘Am I a good man?’, because that’s what good men do.”

Michelle Gomez talks about making Missy likable, and Jenna Coleman about Clara going headlong into adventures.

One Minute Time Machine

Like a save point for the real world - a time machine that takes you back one minute, and no further. Far enough to redo an awkward conversation, for one thing. NSFW language. (Coming from Jimmy from NCIS of all people!)

See also Life Is Strange for a more serious examination of the issues and possibilities such small-scale time travel can bring up.
